To be considered for a scholarship through the ACS Scholars Program, candidates must:
*Please note that students intending to enter Pre-Med programs or pursuing a degree in Pharmacy are not eligible for this scholarship.
The Selection Committee reviews all applications to determine the best overall applicants. The highest-rated students are selected as scholarship recipients.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic record, career objective, financial need, leadership ability, participation in school activities, and community service.
The amount of each individual award depends upon the availability of funding, the number of scholarships awarded, and evidence of financial need. Scholarship recipients receive up to a maximum of $5,000 per year. Scholarship awards are renewable.
All candidates who submit complete applications, including financial documentation, are notified of their status in early June. Scholarship funds are sent to the financial aid offices at the recipient’s college or university. Checks are issued twice yearly ― July and December ― and made payable to the award recipient and the school.
